React (Web + Native) Starter Kit
For when you're looking to build 'the next big thing' for both web and native mobile.
This boilerplate launches with a React web app and React Native app sharing a single code base. It shares the 'business logic' (i.e. actions, containers, reducers) across the platforms, whilst allowing flexibility in View components to ensure your project looks and feels native in each platform.
The project is super helpful to kick-start your next project, as it provides a lot of the common tools you may reach for, all ready to go. Specifically:
- A shared React and React Native structure
- Flux architecture
- Routing and navigation
- Data Caching / Offline
- UI Toolkit/s
- Simpler mobile app development through
- User authentication example through
- API/Data example
- Shows how to read/write data from/to an external API (in our case, Firebase)
- Code Linting with
- Airbnb's JS Linting guidelines
- Setup your own Firebase
- Understanding the file structure
- FAQs & Opinions
- Testing, Deploying & Publishing
- Tests & testing (coming soon...)

🚀 Getting Started
1. Clone and Install
# Clone the repo git clone https://github.com/mcnamee/react-native-starter-kit.git # Install dependencies npm i
2.1. Run the React Native App
# Start the React Native packager npm start
Instructions are shown in the terminal. You can select to open it in:
- An emulator (either iOS or Android)
- Your mobile device with the Expo app. It will reload if you save edits to your files and you will see build errors and logs in the terminal.
2.2. Run the Web App
# Starts are local live-reload server at: # http://localhost:3001 npm run web
Via webpack, starts a localhost server on port 3001 http://localhost:3001.
- Save code and it auto refreshes
- Install Redux DevTools into Chrome to see the state of Redux
